As summer is coming to an end, most clothing retailers are starting to prepare for the new fall merchandise. One critical element to protecting your new line is utilizing clothing security tags and a clothing alarm.
There are several important reasons to put security tags on clothes. First, we all know that traditionally, cold weather merchandise is more expensive than warm weather. It takes a lot more fabric and insulation to make the cold weather products like jackets and such versus a skimpy swim suit. Another critical reason why it is more necessary to use clothing security in the fall and winter is because it is easier to steal. If someone comes in with a t-shirt and shorts in the summer, there in not much they can easily conceal. Conversely, in the winter someone with a large jacket can conceal quite a large amount of merchandise without raising much suspicion.
I rely on Checkpoint tags as my form of clothing security. Checkpoint tags can be placed on all of the items I carry. I generally don’t use clothing security for all items, but rather strategically place tags on high dollar and high theft items. When someone tries to take these items the clothing alarm at the door will sound and give me the chance to react. Now it is true that some will continue to run out and get away with product. The advantage of having the clothing alarm is that I now know who that person is and my staff can be on the look-out the next time they come in. Secondly, that person knows that we use security tags on clothes and they are less likely to risk trying to steal from me again.
